My husband and I visited Ettalong Beach Tourist Resort for a weekend getaway and were absolutely blown away by the experience. It is a truly amazing place - it has motel accommodation, 6 cinemas, boutique markets, 10 restaurants and numerous cafes. The architecture and decor of the complex alone make the visit worthwhile - think of Sydney's QVB Building and...

Friendly checkin. Stayed in a family room - 1 large room containing a double bed, 2 singles and an ensuite by the door. Markets and dining below was a great experience - had endless fun exploring the maze of gantries and corridors throughout the complex. Undercover parking is limited but street parking is safe and ample. Will be back!

Perfect location for a weekend getaway. Catch the ferry from Palm Beach, then walk about 200metres. Rooms are located above the Ettalong Markets. Rooms are quite basic but very clean, comfortable and quiet. There are little courtyard type areas outside the rooms - in fact all over the place - so you don't have to just stay in your room....

Location is fantastic. Very central and close to shops, beach and ferry. Facilities were adequate. Walls are very thin and conversations can be heard from the other side of the balconies. I understand there was construction on site during the day, but the general noise from the patrons was deafening. Amenities were clean and comfortable. I would be looking elsewhere...

We stayed at the Ettalong Tourist Beach Resort for a weekend in August in the bridal suite for the extra room. We were a little taken back as we were deciding between the Mantra and here. We chose here for something different. It was a lot older in the rooms and they needed a definite upgrade. Like 70s looking furniture...

It just came down to the little things - plastic covers on the pillows (really!!!) - no tissues - toaster in room, but no plates or cutlery - hard floors and no complimentary slippers - I know I'm being fussy but apart from that I don't have any complaints. There are 10 restaurants in the complex (we had Indian) and...
